About the Event

The Columbia Protocol has become the gold standard for suicide monitoring and is ubiquitous across the U.S. and worldwide. As policy across all 50 states, national agencies, and most countries, it has helped achieve reductions in suicide across all sectors of society and around the globe. The field is moving away from the strictly medical model towards a public health approach to suicide prevention and requires an effective, portable suicide risk assessment tool. This talk will demonstrate how the Columbia Protocol has been successful in meeting the need for a common language across public health settings and expediting suicide prevention efforts.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand how preventative suicide screening models can be used to identify at-risk individuals and establish care plans that reduce suicide while allocating resources effectively.
  • Utilize a systemic best-practice measurement, the C-SSRS, to identify suicidal ideation and behavior to improve risk identification and safety monitoring, which ultimately aids prevention.
  • Demonstrate how the C-SSRS enables more streamlined triage, provides liability protection and facilitates care delivery to those at highest risk.
